It's a fine and fitting end to the almighty ONE! HUNDRED! DAYS!!!11!!ELEVENTYONE!! Apparently not satisfied with merely having terrorist friends and fellating terrorist foreign leaders, Obama seems to actually want to BE a terrorist. So long, it is assumed, that it doesn't interfere with manicures, having pizza flown in from LA, and keeping the heat up high enough to grow orchids in the winter. In order to get a photo op - they had several shots of the pretty plane (looks like Air Force 1 accompanied by a fighter jet) at the Statue of Liberty but, hey, those were prolly dirty Bush photos or somethin' (no, that makes no sense - he wasn't a camera whore and he was only 9 months in when 9/11 happened, so the photos were prolly Clinton era) or whatever the reason, he needed pretty new pictures of Air Force 1 lookalike and a fighter jet buzzing New York City. There was no warning, so the people panicked, many evacuated, and in fact, were terrorized. It's heartening to know that the new president comforts terrorist dictators and sends money to Hamas terrorists and worries about whether we were too hard on the terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed while deliberately causing terror in the hearts of American citizens. You think I'm exaggerating? Well I'm not.
Isn't that just special, does it warm the cockles of your heart? Cockles, I'm told, are small, limp cocks, like leftists have. So why was there no warning? Well they COULDN'T warn us, they explain. It just wouldn't have been smart. Much smarter to just terrify the people of the city to get a prettier picture. Photoshop would be just too boring, and if you use it you run the risk of having it end up on Photoshopdisasters so why take a chance, right?
But at least they had a good explanation, a backup plan for what to tell people about this, right? Didn't they? Well, let's see what the press guy says:
Oops. I will say one thing. Melissa McEwan, it really IS good to have the grownups in charge again, isn't it? LOL. I swear I'm going to try to remember to bring that up every time something THIS colossally childish happens.
Now riddle me this. With ALL the hay that was made of the video of Palin standing in front of the turkeys as they were being slaughtered (which I thought was pretty funny and at least didn't strike at people's deepest and most realistic fears or PTSD) do you think the media coverage of this abortion is going to be THROWN at us day and night like that was? Or is it going to remain a small, insignificant story, quickly swept under by the latest allegation they can think of against Republicans tomorrow (releasing some new memos or a new report or something - Clinton used to bomb aspirin factories, Obama has to think up other stuff so far. Like Buzzing New York LOL).
Oh, I checked out this mortgage help that's supposed to help struggling homeowners. You *might* be able to get your interest rate lowered if your mortgage is from Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. You can also pay a couple grand for a lawyer to tell you you're screwed. Either way you are. What was it, 900 million to help people struggling with mortgages? Yeah, it's not going to help anyone do anything. My advice - which is pretty hard in this economy - take a second job and pay it. Scale back to the bare minimum lifestyle and sell off what you don't need. Of course, be ready to move if it doesn't work. The Messiah is not going to help you with your mortgage. That money is going nowhere except into the pockets of people who don't need it. All the gold foil is off the tin god.
Federal officials knew that sending two fighter jets and Air Force One to buzz ground zero and Lady Liberty might set off nightmarish fears of a 9/11 replay, but they still ordered the photo-op kept secret from the public.
In a memo obtained by CBS 2 HD the Federal Aviation Administration's James Johnston said the agency was aware of "the possibility of public concern regarding DOD (Department of Defense) aircraft flying at low altitudes" in an around New York City. But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor's office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out.
But at least Bloomberg's aide was reprimanded. Transparency. Fury. It's all here.
